    You're Doing Better Than You Think You Are (Here's Why)

    Do you feel like you're not where you're supposed to be? When we're aiming to become a better version of ourselves, it's easy to set high expectations on who that person is. When we set these unobtainable standards for ourselves, we end up overlooking the small signs of our growth and the evidence of the progress we're making. This mindset shift will remind you to celebrate all the little ways you're improving on a daily basis.

    In this episode, we're sharing why it's so difficult for us to be kind to ourselves and practice self-compassion. We're uncovering why you tend to show more compassion to people around you than you do yourself.

    It's nice to meet ya (Thoughts on Authenticity and Letting People Know You)

    An impromptu episode recorded after Kacia Ghetmiri's EmpowerHer Live Event.  I'm trying to share more of myself to you, to my friends, and to myself. If you're someone who doesn't like talking about themselves, you may identify with this episode.

    As Jamie Kern Lima said, stop "hiding in plain sight."
